Liam O'Brien

I'm a lepidopterist, an illustrator and an Environmental Conservationist here in San Francisco. I brought the idea of The Green Hairstreak Corridor to Nature in the City in 2008 - a project to restore a San Franciscan butterfly's vanishing ecosystem. The Presidio Trust published my first book in 2012 ( co-authored with fellow iNater Matt Zlatunich) - "The Butterflies of the Presidio". I received the 2014 "Environmental Educator" Award from BAY NATURE Magazine. I'm in my 6th year of a joint effort with US F. AND W. to maintain SF's endangered Mission Blue butterfly for future generations: https://baynature.org/articles/driving-home-the-butterfly/ National Public Radio "Forum" Interview: http://www.kqed.org/a/forum/R201402071000
